Does SW plan service to Colorado Springs?

For many years I have flown SW to Denver or Alberqurque to get to places that are much closer to the Springs.  Is there a plan to fly there at some point?  The COS airport is a modern, full sewrvice airport.  It seems that this is a year round destination for businesses and lisure travelers.  Would love to see a Southwest plane on the tramac, especially if it arrived from or waas headed to DAL non-stop.

I have to imagine that Southwest has some way to track route requests so you may want to get in touch with Southwest using one of the methods listed here:

@Jwalsh3rd  Southwest flying into COS would be a dream come true. I get a little excited whenever I see SW planes landing there due to thunderstorms in Denver, but realize it's just a diversion. I've mentioned it to the employees who run the Southwest Community during our meetings more than a few times and I know they pass along ideas, hopefully someday it'll happen.

I fly at least twice per month and would love this.  I live on the north end of the Springs and drive to DIA *because* of Southwest, not because I like DIA  Smiley Happy

 

Whenever I have to go to Europe or APAC I just fly out of Colorado Springs because of the convenience and I can't fly SWA, so no point in driving all the way to Denver.

I heard someone at the COS airport tell me that the concourse that is on the right side of the airport (the one with 5 or 6 gates that you can see from the single concouse windows looking east) was built for Southwest Airlines.  But, they have yet to come to the Springs.  It just sits there waiting for that day.

I doubt it.

 

 

More likely for Western Pacific.

I’ve been on a Frontier flight from Colorado Springs to San Antonio and saw several Southwest planes at the gates. So very sad I couldn’t be on one. I absolutely love flying in and out of a smaller airport.

Southwest's diversions from Denver frequently end up at the Springs. Myguess is that is what you saw.

I have family that lives right outside of COS and we have property out there and go back and forth from Dallas all the time. I hate taking AA but it's many times the best/only option. You'd absolutely have our business if you all flew there! We would love to see that!

Not soon enough in my opinion.
